First of all, I congratulate you on such a great achievement and occupying a position that you and mainly India truly deserved. I am quite hopeful that you would be able to take India to new heights whether it’s in the field of technological development or economical development.
Sir, what I am concerned about is the present education system of the nation. You have given the ministry to a very responsible lady who will surely do a lot in the field to ensure its enhancement. However, we need to go really deep into the intricacies of the system and understand its loopholes. You must be thinking why I have written mainly about this area. So, the simplest answer is I am a teacher by profession and following CCE system for the last 2 years of my career. I know 2 years is a short span to call oneself really experienced, but it is a long time to understand the teaching system.
The continuous comprehensive evaluation system has largely made our education system handicapped. I understand it has reduced the burden from the students and made their life skills more efficient, but what about the knowledge factor sir? It was only education system which made even Americans trust on Indian doctors or engineers, but the present system is largely disabling the children.
It has made the children not stress free, but completely free who know that they can’t be failed. On the other hand, as a teacher I feel that it has only over burdened the teachers with more of clerical work than the actual teaching work.
I hope you will try to peek into the system and change it in order to make Indian children a really knowledgeable lot.
